this is what it said when I tried to compile it

count.cpp:94: unterminated character constant
$

Edited 3 Years Ago by happygeek: fixed formatting

And which is line 94? I'm not inclined to go count your lines and see which generated the error.

You probably have a string or character literal somewhere which doesn't have closing quotes. Or else you have a quote somewhere where it doesn't belong leading the compiler to think you declared a constant where there is none.

I'm not sure about your compiler, but with mine, it doesn't like when you use ' in the middle of a output statement. The following lines have several...

MikeData << "\n\nNumber of a's: " << i_va;
MikeData << "\nNumber of e's: " << i_ve;
MikeData << "\nNumber of i's: " << i_vi;
MikeData << "\nNumber of o's: " << i_vo;
MikeData << "\nNumber of u's: " << i_vu;

$

I believe that you should use \' in place of just a plain '. Hope I could help.

I compile with soloris and my problem with undertermined character constant in in my function void letter but i dont see why because when i didnt have it in data files or whatever its called my program ran fine
